San Jose is a beautiful and thriving city; home to hundreds of thousands of people. Among these are many individuals who would benefit from an improvement in their smiles.

When someone loses a tooth, whether, through tooth extraction or accident, It leaves a gaping hole in the location of the tooth. There are many severe implications to this empty space. Other than the obvious cosmetic issue, the empty space tends to get filled by the movement of the adjacent teeth. As these adjacent teeth move, the entire smile is compromised.
Dental implants are titanium roots that are replaced within the jaw bones to resemble a tooth or a group of teeth. A screw is inserted into the gums and into the jaw bone. A porcelain crown is then attached to the screw to become the new tooth or teeth. They can be used to support dental prestices including crowns dentures and bridges. Today’s treatments are so natural looking no one will know you had surgery. There is approximately a 95 percent success rate for all implants with modern advancements in dentistry some implants can be restored immediately with life like all porcelain crowns.

A dental implant is essentially a titanium root replacement. Titanium is used for the implant because it is one of the earth’s strongest metals, and it happens to be biocompatible. Biocompatible means that the human body recognizes it as a natural material, don’t reject it, and will actually integrate it into the body.
I went to Starbrite to save money on an implant…I’ll go back because of the excellent care and service I received. I had been laid off and my dentist in LOS Gatos wanted over 10k ….so I looked elsewhere. I found Starbrite and I’m so glad I did. The cost was about a third of what the other dentist quoted. All of the staff and dentists were wonderful I never had to wait, during any appointment, and everything was so easy. I usually HATE going to a dentist even to have my teeth cleaned…but the injections for anesthesia at Starbrite were almost not noticeable. I HIGHLY recommend Starbrite for tooth implants…you won’t be sorry.Sue S. Read More Reviews
